Flexpipe broke on my 2013.

Was quoted around 100 bucks. Should I pickup an O2 sensor too?

30,000 miles

Thanks

I wouldn't replace O2 sensor, it will last much longer.
$100 is actually pretty fair price for that repair since flex pipe alone is about $35
Good Luck

Local muffler shop. Tech said he has fixed one before.

My warranty went out the 4th, and not worth 6 hours of my time driving to the dealership anyways.

Thanks for the replies I will skip buying the O2.

The muffler actually moved, and the little exhaust tip melted a hole in the plastic trim behind it. Car is very loud.

Someone welded a piece of straight pipe in place of the flex and it broke at the weld.

The guy at the local muffler shop put flexpipe back and fixed it right.

120 bucks and took about an hour or so.
